Mechanical and Physical Testing
TCR-Kuwait provides a comprehensive range of metallurgical and mechanical testing services (please note that some tests are sent to TCR's ISO 17025 accredited lab in India) with a dedicated machine shop to provide specimen preparation. Test specimens are prepared for metallic and non-metallic materials in the evaluation of tensile, compression, impact, weldability, flaring, flattening, nick break, proof load and bend properties. We can evaluate fastners and undertake component testing as well.

TCR-Kuwait has in-house Mechanical Testing Facility to provide precise determination of Proof Stress by the attachment of various Electronic Extensometers. Tensile test at Elevated Temperature is a special service offered by TCR-Kuwait. Tests are conducted as per ASTM, BS, DIN, NACE or client specified standards.
